Way back in 1st Grade Donna wrote 'The Mouse with the Musical Ears' and has been writing ever since. With plenty of magazine and newspaper publishing credits she believed it was time to honour her dad in book form. The end result is the ebook Dad Love and light and lovely read.
There's some angst between the pages as the author struggles with her dad's suicide and how it affected her life since, but mostly it heart-felt and endearing accounts of the love for her dad. She doesn't just take on her own story but that of her siblings and then draws quotes from a variety of people; ordinary famous and philosophers. This is a book you will turn to again and again for little snippets of real life.
Donna's own life has been profoundly affected by the suicide of her father. It impacts on her future as well as her past and she often wonders if her dad had any idea what it would do to the family. The hardest thing is not having him in her life now to see her sons grown into grown men and become parents themselves. Does she forgive him for doing what he did? Mostly yes, but sometimes, no. Reading the book you get the feeling her homage to him keeps him alive.
This delightful book is filled with quotes and insights into Dad Love.
Why do we love our dads so much? That question is answered in short paragraphs of reminiscing, memories, feelings, thoughts, humour and love from everyday people, celebrities, authors and philosophers.
The author's own insight into why she loved her own dad will take you on a voyage of self discovery, as you try to understand how much your father influenced your life, even if he is no longer here.
A light easy read and a wonderful tribute to dads on Father's Day.
Read it in one sitting or go to any page for a lovely quote about fatherhood.
